Local nonprofit to host car seat installation event
The Village Closet, a donation and distribution center in Huntington, MA will be distributing free convertible car seats during an installation event on August 22nd, 2023 from 12:00pm-3:00pm. The car seats are provided by Buckle Up for Life, as part of their Gift of Safety program.
Buckle Up for Life is a child passenger safety program created by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Toyota. Their mission is to provide motor vehicle education and resources to families in need. The car seats that are available to families will be installed by a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST).
It Takes a Village is one of 65 partner agencies across the country that was awarded the
opportunity to provide car seats to families. On average, 49% of car seats are not installed properly. We are proud to be working with four CPSTs, so families can travel with confidence, knowing their child’s safety seat is installed properly.
